'Emily Owens M.D.' Creator with Three New Projects

'Emily Owens MD'

Jennie Snyder Urman, who created ‘Emily Owens M.D.,’ which had a one-season run on The CW, will write and produce two new projects for The CW, and another for FOX.

All three are under Urman’s CBS Studios deal, with The CW projects being ‘Cross’ and ‘Jane the Virgin.’ She will also write and produce ‘Sober Companion’ for FOX.

The first project, ‘Cross,’ sounds somewhat like an ‘Emily Owens MD’ period piece. Set in 19th century Boston, a 22-year-old woman named Eliza takes over the role of a doctor’s apprentice for her recently deceased twin brother by using his identity. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series will look at themes of gender, politics, and the birth of modern medicine.

Jennie Snyder UrmanThe second project for CW, ‘Jane the Virgin,’ was announced last June. Based on a Venezuelan telenovela (soap opera with a limited run), Jane, a young, hard-working, religious photographer is accidentally artificially inseminated due to a hospital error.

Finally, ‘Sober Companion’ is a comedy project for FOX. The show will center around the relationship between an out-of-control lawyer, and a sober companion who tries to help the lawyer get their life back on track. David Rosenthal, who co-produced ‘Gilmore Girls’ with Urman, will also co-produce this project for Fox.     

While ‘Emily Owens MD’ suffered due to less-than-stellar ratings, some fans felt CW did not give it enough of a chance, making the decision to cancel it after just over a month.

Are you excited to see any of these three projects?
